Vegan daily supplement with Iodine?

#1 Postby veghead25 » Wed Mar 21, 2012 3:58 pm

I've been looking on the internet for a Vegan daily supplement with Iodine since I cut the salt out.

I found Deva Vegan Multivitamin & Mineral Iron-Free on the internet however it contains PABA which comes out on my skin as red colored dots, not acne like. It looks like I took a red thin permanent marker to my skin! :)

I'm open to hear any recommendations.

Define 'cut the salt out'. You should be ingesting at least 1200mg of sodium per day to meet your recommended values! If that 1200mg is fortified, then you should be fine on your iodine intake.

The one I listed above contains Iodine however the B12 is in the form of cyanocobalamin which cotains cyanide. :(

Can you list the supplement names. Thanks.

No salt. I upped my Potassium and whole foods intake, lowered my fat intake between 7-10% of my total calories.

How come everything in nature is low in fat, low in sodium and high in potassium? Doesn't it seem strange that we are the only mammals to dig up sodium to place on our own foods and collect water to drink?

Thanks Fallen_Horse.

Since I eat a minimum of 2 kilos of mixed veggies daily; I always get above 500mg of Sodium daily. I will add a little iodized salt on my salad just to make sure I'm getting enough Sodium.

I don't think I need Iodine either since I'm so energetic. :D False scare on my part. :roll:
